Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Chocolate fudge cake

    • Jane on May 04, 2013

      My daughter's favorite cake so gets made a lot. I've found I need to use 3 cake tins if using the low, sandwich tins as using 2 means they overflow in the oven.

  • Spaghetti with melted cauliflower sauce

    • Jane on December 15, 2021

      Not bad but I didn't love it enough to make again. Though my execution could have been better. I fail to see how pulsing cauliflower in a processor would result in 1/2 inch pieces. You end up with large untouched pieces and a lot of rubble. It really needs to be cut by hand. Maybe because of this my sauce didn't really brown so no caramelized flavor.

  • Rosemary remembrance cake

    • MollyB on November 29, 2022

      The flavors of this cake are delicious, with subtle rosemary and apple flavor. And the loaf was beautiful, too. My cake turned out a touch dry, however - maybe I didn't use enough apple? I had two small apples that I weighed, and weighed them before coring - I'll use more apple next time.

  • Green eggs and ham

    • MollyB on June 25, 2022

      Simple but quite tasty. I loved adding pesto to a basic crepe batter - I'll definitely be using that technique again with different variations on pesto.

  • Strawberry meringue layer cake

    • Astrid5555 on June 04, 2022

      Impressive looking, quick to make, very delicious - a perfect summer cake for a celebration!

  • Star-topped mince pies

    • eliza on January 03, 2023

      I’ve made the pastry for these many times, and it works great. I love the hint of orange in it; I have filled with different mincemeats (David Lebovitz, Pam Corbin etc), but I always use this pastry recipe. Freezes and reheats perfectly, even in the microwave.

  • Chocolate banana muffins

    • eliza on December 05, 2016

      I made a half recipe to try them out. After reading the online comments, I added 1/3 cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips to my half batch. They turned out well, something between a muffin and a cupcake. I ditched the papers and just used Pam spray and they released fine. Very good muffins, definitely a dessert with the chocolate chip addition. They might be good with raspberry icing. The next day, these tasted even better; I will definitely make them again soon.

  • Lemon polenta cake

    • aargle on January 26, 2022

      A delicious cake that turned out perfectly. I used all the syrup which I was unsure about as I had a lot of syrup but it was fine and resulted in a very moist, very lemony cake. Will make again.

    • annapanna on November 07, 2013

      Nice cake. I didn't use up all the syrup, I think half the quantity would be enough.

    • marmite on June 27, 2014

      Fabulous cake - I thought about not adding all the syrup but I'm glad I did, wonderfully moist. Definitely more of a dessert cake to be eaten with a fork though. Delicious with raspberries. Thinking about experimenting by adding rosemary like the Italian ones.

    • Barb_N on August 29, 2017

      I made this (with the syrup) to serve with slices of fresh peach- fabulous and so easy. The regular polenta was a bit gritty(rustic)- I might try instant polenta the next time- and there will be a next time.

  • One-step no-churn coffee ice cream

    • FJT on August 20, 2022

      I've made this twice in the last week as it's so easy and makes lovely ice cream (also I needed to use up the tin of condensed milk!). I like the fact that you don't need to take the ice cream out of the freezer after a few hours and stir it, as you do with most other no churn recipes. The first time round I made a coffee version; I don't have coffee liqueur so I made it with freshly ground coffee powder and some freshly brewed espresso. What a great taste! The second time I just used cocoa powder to flavour the ice cream. I probably ended up using 4-5 tablespoons of cocoa (I didn't measure, just tipped) and the ice cream was wonderful... next time I would add more cocoa powder or even melt some chocolate to make it even more chocolatey. Very happy with both versions.

    • Marsaluna on August 10, 2020

      OMG. I made this last night. It is so good and so easy. It’s like a lovely creamy gelato. I didn’t have espresso or coffee liquor so I used vodka. At first the vodka taste seemed a little too evident but after freezing, the vodka taste dissipated and deep dark espresso shone through.

  • Apple and almond cake

    • FJT on July 08, 2020

      Having read the comments on I cut back on the eggs and sugar (I used 6 eggs, 200g of sugar and a 9" tin rather than 10"). In addition I didn't add sugar to the apples and I separated the eggs and whipped the whites. The recipe comes together very easily if you have the stewed apples made in advance. My cake took 60 mins at 160 fan - I'd probably up the temp to 170 fan next time. Very nice, light cake.

  • Kerala fish curry

    • FJT on February 26, 2022

      Quick and easy! Perfect weeknight dish.

  • Meatballs with orzo

    • darcie_b on January 14, 2023

      This is easy and delicious but the orzo does tend to stick so be sure to stir it often.

  • Banana muffins!

    • JodieE on November 13, 2015

      I used 300g gluten free flour & threw in dark chocolate chips

  • Vegan spag Bol

    • Barb_N on January 10, 2022

      I had to make some modifications, which may have affected the final texture. I had no red lentils and used chopped portobello caps instead of dried porcini. In spite of decreasing the liquid, and simmering for almost 3 hours, my sauce is fairly watery. I plan to freeze most of it, so maybe I can add the red lentils into each portion as I use it. Mine does not look tomatoey like the photo- will try to modify.

    • Mayandbill on January 06, 2022

      Made this pretty much as written and it was really good, with a similar range of flavours to meat ragu. Best veggie/vegan Ragu recipe I’ve tried.

  • Chilli jam

    • Carol.Furness on August 10, 2014

      Love this and have made it several times. Change the ratio of chillis to peppers to suit your palate

  • Guinness punch pie

    • Foodycat on October 08, 2022

      I used a bought all-butter pastry instead of making my own. This is delicious - smooth, creamy, malty custard with a warm spice.

  • Parmesan shortbreads

    • TrishB on April 29, 2016

      Some people prefer these with a little added salt and 25g more parmesan. Some swap tasty cheddar for the parmesan and leave out the egg yolk, using equal quantities of flour, butter, cheese and roll them out a bit thinner.

  • Moroccan-spiced chicken with dates and aubergines

    • raybun on September 13, 2016

      This was absolutely delicious. Easy to prepare in advance, with incredible flavours. Don't omit the orange, it really adds to the dish.

  • Chocolate Guinness cake

    • MsMonsoon on January 24, 2023

      Third time making this and it turned out well. Springform pan made a nice, tall cake, with only the slightest sink in the middle. Baked an hour but that was probably too long. Frosting was perfect consistency. Only had about 6 or 7 oz. of cream cheese (bar, not tub), used 1 cup powdered sugar, and added 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream that I had whipped to soft peaks. Nigella site’s recipe calls for 17 tablespoons of butter, but other recipes or adaptations online use 10 or 12. I used 10 and it seemed fine. May try more next time but 17 seems like a lot!

  • Chocolate gingerbread

    • MsMonsoon on January 04, 2023

      I don't own Feast, but I made this from Nigella's website using the US measurements. I did have black treacle so used that instead of molasses, but used light corn syrup instead of Lyle's golden syrup. I used dark chocolate chips, black cocoa powder from King Arthur, and I didn't make the icing because I didn't have ginger ale. I loved this recipe. It's dark dark dark, and tastes like spiced dark chocolate. Love the density of the chocolate chips. Curious to try with the icing. At first I thought frosting would be overkill, but the cake itself is not overly sweet.

  • Banana bread

    • Dolcetto23 on March 16, 2021

      My go-to banana bread recipe. Very easy, no need to dirty the mixer as it uses melted butter, and works every time. I use half wholemeal flour, and sometimes add mixed seeds as well.

  • Instant chocolate mousse

    • Pamsy on June 23, 2022

      Excellent recipe which does not contain eggs.

  • Turkey breast stuffed with Italian sausage and Marsala-steeped cranberries

    • Pamsy on December 30, 2021

      My butcher boned a 5kg Turkey and I then used this recipe. Easy to carve and very tasty. I stuffed the bird on Christmas eve so less work next day. Definitely worthy of a repeat next Christmas. Good recipe, worked as written.

  • Ham in Coca Cola

    • Pamsy on January 02, 2023

      Made for the first time over Christmas and I'm puzzled as to why this is so popular. Not to be repeated.

  • No-churn brandied pumpkin ice cream

    • anya_sf on May 11, 2019

      There isn't a lot of pumpkin in this, so the pumpkin flavor isn't that prominent. With the nutmeg and brandy, the ice cream tasted like a cross between pumpkin and eggnog ice creams - not a bad thing, in my view. This was very easy to make and I'd definitely make it again.

  • Mughlai chicken

    • anya_sf on April 08, 2019

      I used regular (European-style) yogurt instead of Greek because that's what I had on hand and it seemed to work just fine. I also used brown raisins, which were fine but did not look as pretty, but this isn't the most attractive dish. Made it one day ahead and reheated. My family liked it a lot. My husband wanted more spice, which I wouldn't have minded as well, but our heat-averse son thought it was excellent as is. A spritz of lemon or lime at the end wouldn't be unwelcome. For simplicity, I might just cut the chicken into smaller pieces to begin with and possibly skip the browning step, as I'm not sure it added much. This looks like a long, complicated recipe, but it really isn't. I'd definitely make this again.

  • Whole beef shin with red wine, carrots and little onions

    • etcjm on February 27, 2022

      This was really tasty. Lots of flavour - but then there should be! I used port instead of red wine and used small chantennay carrots and shallots. It did dry out, so I added more water before adding some dumplings. This unfortunately then dried out the gravy a bit too much. Next time, I'll add double the stock at the beginning. Much tastier than my made up stews!

  • Salted caramel martini

    • hbakke on May 28, 2022

      In my opinion, vermouth doesn't belong with salted caramel flavors. This wasn't a cocktail I enjoyed and the recipe made a weird amount that barely filled 1/2 of a standard martini glass. Not a repeat for me.

  • Spanish omelette

    • TLouise on March 24, 2022

      This was just okay. I probably wouldn't make again.

  • No-churn pomegranate ice cream

    • KatieK1 on November 23, 2022

      Although I have the equipment to make churned ice cream, I've developed an interest in making it without churning. I've made this recipe twice now for guests and it has been a grand success and unbelievably easy, only taking 10 minutes and without any cooking. I used unsweetened pomegranate juice and the American variation.

  • Rum-roasted potatoes

    • MikeMcKay on March 31, 2022

      Pimento Berries (UK) = allspice berries (USA)

  • Ukrainian garlic bread (Pampushky)

    • Futuregirl23 on November 26, 2022

      Amazing! And much easier to make than I thought. There is a LOT of garlic and it’s not cooked, you baste it onto the cooked bread. I think I’d cook it a little first next time so it’s not as strong. However it was still delicious.
